About the Images

This is a certificate designed and letterpress printed by hand (on a Vandercook) by Sara Wrzesinski, Proprietor of Raky Press.

This piece has a history which makes it dear to me. In 2010, amid the rescue of a fair bit of antiquarian printing and office equipment, I joked that I would soon win an award for "the best-equipped office of 1939." Sara was taken by this remark and decided to create just such an award. She designed and printed it in the fall of 2010. A blank version of it became her "bundle" submission for the Amalgamated Printers' Association mailing. She very kindly printed this filled-in version for me; it was a complete suprise to me.

Please note that this certificate is Copyright 2010 by Sara. While in general I try to make the linking images in CircuitousRoot public domain, this one is an exception. It may not be reproduced in any way without the permission of Sara Wrzesinski.
